Time-lapse nature photography has been used to track the Aurora Borealis, the retreat of glaciers, the migration of sea turtles and the growth of giant pumpkins. The Huffington Post compiles the cream of the crop; the best time lapse nature videos of 2012 is due out soon, the 2011 videos can been seen here.

Restoration ecologists use time-lapse photography to document projects including dam removal to restore rivers. The Condit Dam breach in Washington State is a dramatic example (let’s just say it involves explosives). 

Here in Massachusetts we have yet to use dynamite to aid in our dam removal efforts but they are exciting all the same. Instead you will see in Pelham, Taunton and Cheshire images of restoration in action – from dams being removed by excavators, to new wildlife friendly culverts installed in seconds before your eyes. In 3 minutes or less see what it takes us and our partners years to plan, permit and implement.
